Cozmo ABC Achrafieh: Another Surprise from Boubess Group

Wooden features, green leather, metallic structures, reflective ceramics, mirrors, graffiti… Welcome to a piece of architectural wonder… welcome to Cozmo ABC. I have to start by expressing my ongoing confusion when it comes to Boubess’ restaurants. I can’t understand to date how a group like the famous Boubess Empire manages to offer good food in »more...

Some of the Finest Italian Pizzas in Lebanon

Pizza, who doesn’t love pizza? This Italian classic is the second most popular food in the world, after burgers. From Italy to France, the United States to the Middle East, pizzas come in many shapes and sizes, but the end result is the same: an oven-baked, flat bread typically finished off with a tomato sauce, cheese »more...

They still looked beautiful
while they were picking them up

Holidays Part 4

Playing backgammon in front of the butcher in al-Zarif I have gone on my annual Trek to the Motherland: I have to replenish my body and soul with energy in order to be able to deal with another year of Lebanon. It is a country of incredible beauty and wonderful people, but the place is a paradox. What you experience in Lebanon in one year, you experience in another country in a life time. The pace of living is so fast, yet so relaxed at the same time, that it drains your energy like no other place.

Subway: Why Lebanon Hasn’t Taken to Subway… I Like It

I’m not sure why our country hasn’t taken to Subway. The restaurant’s food is fresh, fulfilling and relatively healthy, surely healthier then all other fast food ideas. My Subway story started back during my university years; a branch opened on the Zalka highway and I remember passing by every other day of the week to enjoy »more...

Flare Pan: Cooking Just Got Faster

A new pan called “Flare Pan” cooks 30% faster than standard pans, due to a new design inspired by jet and rocket engines, which mean it has a series of tapered fins which captures and channels heat from the flame, resulting in efficient and even heat distribution. Developed by University of Oxford engineer Thomas Povey »more...

Malak Al Taouk Has a New Logo

I spotted Malak Al Taouk‘s new logo in Kaslik yesterday and it looks much nicer than the old one. I don’t know why I’ve never liked this place even though a lot of my friends love it. I’ve only tried it once some 6 or 7 years ago and that was it.

Arz Water

I spotted the new slogan on Facebook and I thought it was a new bottled mineral water brand but it looks like it’s been out for years. That’s pretty weird because I never spotted it in any supermarket. I’ve tried most of the brands we have in Lebanon and my favorite has always been Tannourine.

Little Abbas’ Father Apprehended By The Lebanese Police

[YouTube]
Based on reports from Al-Jadeed and LBCI, the security forces have identified the people behind the video that went viral earlier today and was showing a young kid beating another child and being encouraged by his parents. Moreover, LBCI just reported that the Internal Security Forces’ cyber crimes bureau raided the al-Raml al-Ali area in Dahieh to arrest the father of the minor Abbas. T.
This is great news and I am glad this video went viral and these people were arrested. I don’t get if it was the father or some relative or a total stranger who did this, they must be punished accordingly because this is a crime against an innocent child.

My Trip To Jordan: Part2

In case you’ve missed Part1 of my trip to Jordan, you can check it out [here]. I’ve shared in it my experience at the dead sea, at the Baptism site (Al Maghtass) and Ma’In resort. The second part of our trip was the most interesting one as I got to experience Petra by day and by night, spend a whole afternoon in the desert, watch the sunset at Wadi Rum before heading to Aqaba.

WTF?

The video is uploaded by YaSour but it doesn’t say if it’s in Lebanon or not. They do sound Lebanese though.

The Middle East Friendship Chart

Here’s a useful guide done by Joshua Keating and Chris Kirk to explain who’s on whose side in the Middle East. For some reason, Lebanon does not exist on their list but Hezbollah is mentioned.
